Northwood Meadows State Park spans 664.5 acres in a wilderness setting. This wooded park has a vast wetlands area and is excellent for nature walks and picnicking. The easily accessible trails also make the park an ideal place for biking, hiking, snowmobiling, and cross-country skiing. A trail map is available here.

The park includes a lake created by a dammed brook - a popular place for fishing and non-motorized boating. Access to water bodies in the Park is not available by car or vehicle and may include a walk of over 0.5 miles.
